Slewfoot, sorry that it's taken me so long to respond. Hopefully you are notified when you receive a post. Here's what I can tell you about the Oppo 93 and Flac files. If you burn them to a CD (or DVD, I suppose) and specify gapless playback (as others suggested), then the Blu-Ray player will play them without gap. (There is a tiny pause, but it's fractions of a second and no different than if I burn as a regular CD/WAV files. I'm currently using CD Burner XP for reasons explained below.) A nice thing about the Oppo is that you can also plug in an external HD and play Flac files right off your drive--one doesn't even need to make a playlist. If the files for a show are saved in a folder and the file names are in order, just find the folder and press play. Pretty slick. However, there is a noticeable 1-second gap. My guess is that this is what the Oppo rep was referring to. Side-note, my reason for experimenting with this was to play Kevin Tobin's 31 Dec 78 matrix transfer in DTS 5.1. It's incredible! CD Burner XP can transfer DTS 5.1 Flac files onto a CD in DTS 5.1 as easy as if one were making a WAV or MP3 CD. And burned to disc, the pauses between songs are barely perceptible. I'm considering finally reaching into the bit torrent world so that I can download his other DTS transfers. Good luck!
